"The good news for readers of Cari Mora is that Hannibal is here in spirit if not in person. This is a very peculiar book, lavishly ridiculous in almost every respect and fully committed to the gothic extremes of human cruelty ... Sounds like fun, right? Well, it is … There are decapitations, multiple dismemberments and brains dripping off ceilings. Also, a certain amount of lyrical stuff about manatees and seabirds, and some comic business with a foul-mouthed cockatoo … What his fans look for is here – turned up to 11." (Sam Leith Spectator)
"Thomas Harris set the bar for modern suspense writing … [Cari Mora is] a tense heist thriller, plausibly grounded in coastal Florida and urban Colombia ... Harris’s best since The Silence of the Lambs" (Leo Robson New Statesman)
"Cari Mora reinforces the brilliance of an author who can carve a piece of art from the placement of words on a page to form a narrative that scorches the mind, and makes one think." (Shots Magazine)
"A literary event ... Thomas Harris is a supreme thriller writer – for not only does he create memorable and monstrous villains, but he also gives us formidable female protagonists … Violent, brutal and action-packed, yet told with Harris’s typical wry wit, it crackles from first page to last." (Daily Mail)
From the Publisher
Praise for Cari Mora
‘The last two decades of 19th century popular fiction were dominated by Conan Doyle and Sherlock Homes. A century on, suspense literature has achieved their equals in Thomas Harris.’ - Guardian
‘I hope with all my heart that [Harris] will write again, and sooner rather than later – novels that bravely and cleverly erase the line between popular fiction and literature are very much to be prized.’ - Stephen King
‘Harris’s writing bears the hallmarks of honed perfection.’ - The Times

Put it this way: I read it last weekend and can’t remember who even gets the gold. Or why the detective character was in the story. Totally forgettable.
What a pity. Harris' talent is squandered on this poorly developed tale. Full of potentially interesting characters who are more caricatures than fully realized.
Lacking the depth one has come to expect, even Harris seems eager to have it come to an end, with an abrupt finale that left me wishing that his talents were put to better use. 😢
It reads more like a Cormac McCarthy crime movie, but that isn't a bad thing. I hope that if this is the direction Harris continues to write, we don't have to wait so long between books.
